Committed Pony Club volunteers who have served the organisation for over 20 years have received the prestigious Cubitt Award. While major efforts are being made by the government to encourage the public to take up the mantle of “volunteer”, the Pony Club proudly presented awards to over 50 volunteers at a lunch ceremony in Stratford-upon-Avon today.
The annual award gains its name from Hon Guy Cubitt who was the Chairman of The Pony Club for 25 years and President from 1970 – 1979, and is awarded to volunteers who have been nominated by their particular branches.
“Volunteers are the lifeblood of The Pony Club,” said a spokesperson for the Pony Club, the country’s biggest youth organisation which boasts over 44,000 members.
“The organisation has today been recognising the contribution of many of its longstanding volunteers through the annual ceremony to mark the presentation of The Cubitt Award.”
Between the 50 recipients, over 1,000 years of voluntary service was represented.
